NEW YORK -- Jeremy Lin fell just short of a triple-double, though there was a 10th assist after the buzzer.The point guard tracked down the game ball and gave it to Kenny Atkinson, who got his first win as an NBA coach not far from where he grew up.Pretty special, Atkinson said, his eyes welling up a bit.Lin had 21 points, nine rebounds and nine assists in his Nets home debut, Brook Lopez scored 25 and Brooklyn beat the Indiana Pacers 103-94 on Friday night.Lin drew some delirious cheers the way he briefly did during his run of Linsanity last time he played in New York, with the Knicks in 2012.Atkinson was the assistant coach who worked closely with him on that team, and Lins first thought was of the Northport native when the buzzer sounded.This is his and he deserves it, and I better not see him play with that ball or whatever, Lin said. He better get that framed and make sure he knows.Sean Kilpatrick hit consecutive 3-pointers during the decisive fourth-quarter surge and finished with 18 points for the Nets, who lost to Boston in their opener.Paul George had 22 points and nine rebounds for the Pacers, who were outscored 31-15 in the fourth quarter.The Nets opened their fifth season in Brooklyn by improving to 4-1 in home openers, an immediate highlight in a rebuilding season where there arent expected to be many of them.They brought the fight to us, George said. We knew coming in that this team necessarily (did not have) have the names but they play hard and they play together.The Pacers, who opened with a 130-121 overtime victory over Dallas, surged into the lead with a 31-point third quarter.But the Nets answered with a run early in the fourth, then took control after Georges basket tied it at 85 midway through the period.Justin Hamiltons three-point play snapped the tie and Kilpatrick followed with consecutive 3-pointers to put the Nets up 94-85 with about 4 minutes left. Lin closed it out down the stretch with some free throws and a basket in the lane.I thought Brooklyn came out and played harder than we did, Pacers coach Nate McMillan said.Pacers: Myles Turner, who had 30 points and 16 rebounds in the opener, finished with 13 points and 11 boards. ... G Aaron Brooks missed the game with a sore right knee.Nets: Lopez played in his 489th game, tying Richard Jefferson for seventh on the Nets career list. Next up is Kerry Kittles at 496. ... Herb Turetzky began his 50th season as the Nets official scorer. They acknowledged him during a first-quarter timeout.FREQUENT GUESTSThe Nets improved to 3-3 against the Pacers in home openers. The Pacers six visits tied them with Atlanta for the most frequent home-opening opponent.THAD GLADThaddeus Young scored 19 points. He spent 1 1/2 seasons in Brooklyn and was told last spring by general manager Sean Marks that he wouldnt be traded. Then he was dealt, getting dealt to Indiana for the rights to first-round pick Caris LeVert. He wasnt disappointed by the deal, even though hes still trying to sell his home in Brooklyn. I think the farther we got into the summer, I think they realized that there wasnt any use in just holding me or continuing to keep me here if Im trying to be in situations where Im trying to win, Young said.HOME SWEET HOMEKilpatrick, a Yonkers, New York native, has scored in double figures in 21 of his 25 games as a Net. He is 20-for-40 from 3-point range in nine career home games at Barclays Center.UP NEXTPacers: Visit Chicago on Saturday. The Pacers have lost their last three trips to the United Center.Nets: Visit Milwaukee on Saturday, facing former franchise star and later coach Jason Kidd, who left Brooklyn in 2014 after one year to coach the Bucks.

Hey!" The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. Nike Uomo Air VaporMax Plus Nere Scuro Grigie.Y. -- Jayna Hefford scored the winning goal Friday as Canada survived a scare with a 4-3 win over Sweden at the Four Nations womens hockey tournament. Vapormax Nere.J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. BOULDER, Colo. -- The Colorado Buffaloes were greeted by a swarm of fans upon their early morning return last weekend.That sort of welcoming brigade hasnt happened often in recent memory. Neither have wins of this magnitude.The new and improved Buffaloes (3-1, 1-0 Pac-12) stunned Oregon 41-38 in Eugene behind the performance of freshman quarterback Steven Montez. They try to follow it up Saturday as an 18 1/2-point favorite against Oregon State (1-2).As for a possible hangover effect, well, Colorado insisted the page has been turned. This is a team on the cusp of appearing in the AP Top 25 poll and trying to make a bowl appearance for the first time since 2007.Our goal every week is to go 1-0 and our ultimate goal is to be Pac-12 champions, cornerback Chidobe Awuzie said. In the grand scheme of things, it definitely helps that and we were happy after the win. But now were just trying to focus in on Oregon State and keep this train rolling.Everyone around campus appears on board, because the looks are way friendlier these days. The conversations, too.We sense a lot more trust among people and they trust us to come out with wins this time around, receiver Bryce Bobo said.The schedule certainly doesnt get any easier with the remaining teams after Saturday a combined 17-9. Theres also this: Colorado hasnt exactly followed up big wins with a string of more big wins.The Buffaloes knocked off a ranked West Virginia squad in 2008, only to go 2-7 the rest of the way. They beat Georgia in 2010, but followed it up by going 2-6 during a season in which then-coach Dan Hawkins lost his job.Being in all those close games has definitely helped us build to where we are now, Awuzie said. Weve gone through so much adversity that I feel as though, whatever comes at us, well be ready.Beavers coach Gary Andersen appreciates what the Buffaloes have accomplished under coach Mike MacIntyre, whos in his fourth season at Colorado. Andersen is trying to revitalize the program in Corvallis.Theyve continued to recruit and battle like crazy and fight in games and get better and better, Andersen said. And now theyre starting to see those Ws come their way.Things to know as Oregon State and Colorado meet for a ninth time (the Beavers lead 5-3):DECISIONS, DECISIONS: MacIntyre has quite a QB quandary -- go with senior captain Sefo Liufau on a hurt ankle or the freshman Montez who has the hot hand.dddddddddddd Montez accounted for 468 yards of total offense in the win over the Ducks. Liufau has broken virtually every school passing mark during his time at Colorado. We need both of them, because somebodys going to get dinged up, MacIntyre said. We need both of those guys ready to play.HEAVYWEIGHTS: The Buffaloes feel like theyve earned the right to climb into the ring with the heavyweights again. We used to be a welterweight. I think we stepped up to at least being able to spar with the heavyweights, MacIntyre said. The more games we win, well see if were a heavyweight.FAST START: The Buffaloes have scored on their opening possession in every game this season. For good measure, theyve also gotten points in three of their four opening drives in the second half. Theyve built themselves a very good football team, Andersen said. Theyve ground through the process without question. Theyre playing well.BOLDEN ADVENTURE: Oregon States Victor Bolden Jr. leads the nation with a 40.2-yard average on kickoff returns. Whats more, he has two plays covering 90 or more yards -- one on a 92-yard sweep against Idaho State and another on a 99-yard kickoff return last weekend against Boise State . Bolden hurt Colorado last season with four returns for 110 yards. Hes a huge difference-maker, Andersen said. Victor is having a nice year for us at this point.MORE OFFENSIVE: The Beavers are averaging 28 points in three games, which is up from a season ago. Theyre allowing 25 points -- also an improvement. They are a much-improved football team from last year when we played them, said MacIntyre, whose team beat the Beavers 17-13 last season in Corvallis to end a 14-game conference skid.---AP Sports Writer Anne M.
